October 10, 2013 - 2:20 pm

Social justice issues are brought to light through film this week with the Social Justice Film Festival.  The Festival features  60 documentaries and films exploring a range of social-justice topics including racism and poverty, criminal justice, and human rights around the world.

The opening film is Mothers of Bedford. It’s a documentary that follows five women as they attempt to “parent” their children from prison. The film is being shown in partnership with the Seattle non-profit, Books to Prisoners, an all-volunteer organization that works on behalf of prisoners who submit requests for reading material.

Guests:

Laura Brady is the assistant director of the Social Justice Film Festival.

Dr. Tanya Erzen is the director of Freedom Education Project Puget Sound or FEPPS. The FEPPS is a college program in the Washington Corrections Center for Women.
